RESEARCH SETS NATURAL GRASS BENCHMARKS FOR AMERICAN FOOTBALL TURF
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the similarities between FIFA benchmarks and the natural grass at a top performing American Football field
Act Global and testing institute Labosport put the FIFA Quality Concept to test at Kyle Field stadium at Texas A&M University. The on-site assessment measured shock absorption, vertical deformation (foot stability), rotational resistance (traction), energy restitution (fatigue indicator) and various ball-to-surface interactions.
Results confirm the synthetic turf manufactured by Act Global is comparable in performance, quality and safety to natural grass at a top football stadium in pristine condition.
